London: Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson says his `Twilight Saga` character Edward Cullen would not like his alter-ego in new raunchy movie `Bel Ami`.

The 25-year-old actor said his character Georges Duroy in his latest film, couldn`t be more different from one-woman man Cullen, Contactmusic reported.

"I guess there`s something quite fun about `Bel Ami`, going from Edward to playing some guy who pretty much abuses women to get money out of them. Edward so wouldn`t approve - and I thought that was a funny irony. But the story, independently, is great, so I only thought about the irony afterwards," he said.

Pattinson also says his new character has no redeeming features about him as he doesn`t care who he hurts.

"He just doesn`t have a conscience. He`s content to do nothing and thinks everything should just be given to him. But if someone slights him, or directs any insult at him, the most overwhelming energy grabs him and he turns into the absolute devil."
